You may have heard Amazon.com using drones to deliver packages or the Canadian military using drones in battle, or law enforcement using drones as tactical tools.
Unmanned vehicles, a.k.a. drones, are used today in more ways than we might realize.
Allison Malloy, software engineer at Kongsberg Gallium, joins us Wednesday, February 25th to discuss how drones are used in commercial situations (like Amazon.com) as well as agriculture, law enforcement, underwater exploration, and in defence/military sectors.
Allison is a software engineer turned project manager with a Bachelor of Applied Science and a Masters of Systems and Computer Engineering. She ‘stumbled’ into the defence industry 13 years ago and hasn’t looked back. Allison will share with us her own work on the command and control aspects of drone usage; her work in the Canadian defence industry; and how those two worlds intersect with other better known technology fields such as web development, graphic design, and video gaming.
